Been hitting some golf balls lately between writing projects, gives me something to look forward to. Mario Golf for the Gamecube was just released this week and it is a spectacular update from the N64 version, with fantasy locales and graphics that will make your jaw drop and mouth water. The play mechanics are updated as well with very tight controls and a variety of options. The controls are easy to pick up for the novice, and there's significant depth for the serious gamer. Nintendo strikes again with a very fun, very pretty, very accessible game for all ages. A classic Mario experience.
